ⓘ Crown King Branch

Completed in 1904, the Crown King Branch of the Bradshaw Mountain Railroad, also known as Murphys Impossible Railroad, linked the town of Crown King with the end of the Prescott and Eastern Railroad at Mayer, Arizona.

Frank Murphy began construction of a standard gauge railway in 1895. The building was completed in 1904, when he reached the king. The tracks were torn up in 1927, leaving what is now known as FR 259.

The railroad received its name due to the fact that the crown of the King-2.000 feet higher than Mayer and the terrain between the two places is very steep. It this fact has caused skeptics to believe that the two cities cannot be connected by rail. In General, the railroad required five switchbacks, tunnels and overpasses extremely high to climb to the crown of the king.

The old goats were used risky drivers, however, they were removed and the road was changed to accommodate cars and trucks. This process includes the addition of sharp turns on the road to bridge the gap flyovers, where once stood. The road also goes around the collapsed tunnel where the tracks once.
